I shot the video with the same set-up I used at the Olympics, my 5DMKII, the RØDE VideoMic, and a Litepanels Micro LED light. The neck strap I’m using is the BlackRapids Rs-5 (perfect for storing my iPhone and extra memory cards).
I shot most of the party shots at 6400 ISO and used the LED to light people’s faces when they were talking. Next time I’m going to put a CTO (orange) gel on the LED to give people a nice tan, instead of the ghostly whites. Cuz let’s face it, us tech peeps need all the tan we can get. :P

I used the 16-35mm f/2.8 lens that I rented from Lens Rentals Canada, an awesome new online rental site. I ordered it online and the lens arrived within 2 days. I highly recommend it for trying out pro gear before you buy or just to experiment with L-lenses as they are soooo sexy.
